Proof of concept
So these are the types of pendants I've been working on lately. They are not close to fished, they need to be polished and they stones need to be set properly. But this is their basic shape. This is my version of a medallion or talisman if you like. No hairy chests in site.
The big one is a tourmalinated quartz stone. It's basically a clear quartz with many lines of black tourmaline crystal inclusion. That is what gives it those black lines through the stones.
I love these types of gems, with big beautiful statement making inclusions. So different from your average stone and you wont find two stones that are the same.
I made some simple pearl ones as well, I have a thing for pearls right now.
The type of pendant is very simple, it's straight up and down, No fuss. Pretty much quite a lot just like I am.
And here is a photo showing the condensation on the outside of the windows to our flat this morning. In London we would have condensation on the inside of the windows every morning in the winter as it was so cold outside and warm inside. Here we instead have the condensation on the outside of the windows as it's so cold inside (air con I love you) and so hot and humid on the outside.
